  • University of Portsmouth guide

    Situated just a stone's throw away from the historic dockyards of Portsmouth, the university was originally founded to educate the engineers and workers of the docks; it now offers a wide array of qualifications in the arts, sciences and humanities.

    An accepting university, it takes on students without traditional qualifications who have the potential to excel. The Students' Union is based in a swish modern building which was erected in 2002, while the rest of the buildings are scattered around the city in listed buildings and ex-army barracks. You'll certainly feel the city's naval history if you decide to study here.
